Loyola University, Chicago (chemistry)
I obtained my Ph.D. in organic chemistry from UCSC. As a graduate student I taught both general chemistry and organic chemistry courses and also made extra money tutoring college and high school students. After getting my Ph.D. I worked as a research scientist in a few Bay Area startups. I really enjoyed the thrill of scientific discovery but something was missing from my life. Even though the research I was doing was useful, the effects of it could be seen thirty years from now or may be never at all. Tutoring is a chance for me to be useful right away. There is nothing more gratifying than when you see this light in student's eyes and hear the phrase: "I finally got it!"
I provide tutoring to pre-med college students in general and organic chemistry. These students are at tremendous pressure to succeed and I understand the stress they all are going through. I see my job as to provide the missing ingredients from their educational experience. For some the lecture or the book simply does not make sense. I will explain the concept in as many different ways as needed until the student gets it. For some more practice problems are needed and I am happy to provide as many problems as needed and guide the student through a solution.
I apply similar principles to working with high school students. I have a lot of experience in tutoring students for AP chemistry, honors chemistry, AP chemistry exam and SAT chemistry exam. A lot of times the way things are explained in class simply does not work for a student. I work together with the student to find the way that works best for him or her. During my tutoring sessions I engage a student by asking questions and guiding her or him to the answer. I do it at the pace that works for this particular person. We are all different and learn in different fashions. I see my job as to find the right way and to unlock that potential that I see in every students who comes to me.
Being a parent of a teenager can be very stressful and very busy and can involve lots of driving. To make parent's life easier I provide in-home tutoring for high school students.
I am looking forward to tutoring both high school and college students. Thank you for checking our my profile.
Best of luck,

Anna has been amazing. She is very organized, punctual and has a true gift; she is very passionate about chemistry and creates an environment that is inviting and conducive to a great pain free learning experience. I strongly recommend her to any one seeking a jump start and maintenance of basic and advance knowledge about chemistry. She rocks.
Anna was able to explain some concepts my daughter struggled with in a way that made sense, so my daughter was able to maintain her grade in her chem class. I was also very grateful to Anna for being flexible when our family schedule kept changing and we had to change lesson times.
All in all, Anna was very nice to work with, she is knowledgeable about chemistry and able to share that knowledge with her students (which is a big thing, because most high school teachers seem unable to do it).
I am thinking of going back to school, and if I do, I will for sure hire Anna for my chemistry tutor, as well as recommend her to others.
Anna tutored me in organic chemistry. Anna is kind and encouraging tutor, who is passionate about organic chemistry and explains complex topics clearly. I had trouble understanding lab techniques such as NMR, and she explained underlying concepts while providing tricks and tips that gave me an edge that I did not have before. I really liked how she tried to come prepared for the sessions (with a modeling kit, another textbook). She can improve on emailing materials when she says she will (as well as answering questions through email promptly).
Anna was such a helpful tutor! I have an organic chemistry final exam coming up and needed help understanding the mechanisms and steps required to solve the problems and she did just that! She helped me with complex problems catering to the way my teacher taught in class and she used the reagents and material my teacher taught in class which made it WAY easier for me to understand. She also was very accommodating and on time with responses and very thorough in her explanations! Definitely will be coming back and definitely recommended if you need help with tough organic chemistry problems.
Anna is passionate, knowledgeable, and driven for OCHEM. She saw my weaknesses and grilled me until I had the material down. She was prepared, she knew the material, and most important, she was able to teach it in a way that I was able to understand it. With her help I went from a low grade to passing OCHEM. I thought it was impossible but by the final, through several tutoring sessions, it all made sense. I'll will certainly use her services for OCHEM 2!! I can't even express how lucking I was to have Anna as my tutor.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I can tutor honors chemistry, AP chemistry, organic chemistry, general chemistry. I have a lot of experience in tutoring high school students for chemistry, Honors Chemistry and AP chemistry. I also helped students prepare for the AP Chemistry exam and SAT chemistry exam.
